First up are Fernando Tatis and Cory Sullivan. Fernando “Double Play Superman” Tatis had a big day, going 3-4 with an RBI. Believe it or not, Fernando has played in 88 games and is hitting .252 with 6HR’s and 29RBI’s…thats good for 5th on the team(one ahead of Luis Castillo). Cory Sullivan had a huge day with 2 triples and a RBI. The baseball rule of thumb is you put your speed up top. The Mets have 11 triples out of the leadoff spot. I think Cory earned himself another start(by the Mets means). Good job Tatis and Sullivan.
Last up is Fransisco Rodriguez. Frankie, who had blown two consecutive save chances for the first time since 2004, notched his 25th save in 30 opportunities on Wednesday. Here at TRDMB, we gotta call a spade a spade. Krod’s ERA has gone up to a 3.35 and in 26 games with a runner in scoring position, he sports an ugly 9.72 ERA. Now we all know Krod was going to be an adventure and for most of the first part of the year, he was solid but his numbers are a slight bit worse in the second half. The positive is the batting average for lefties(.180) and righties(.222). Krod needs to improve on this but he gets a MUA for breaking his streak. Good job
David Wright for going 3-5 with 2 runs scored and refusing to join the DL squad
Pedro Feliciano and Brian Stokes for 1.2 innings of scoreless relief
Oliver Perez for magically only giving up 1 run while walking 6 and giving up 6 hits
Gary Sheffield for going 2-3 and a run scored
